They come with a 60,000 km treadwear warranty, I've only had them a month so can't really speak to the durability. We just got about 10 inches of snow overnight and the bastard who plows my lot made a beautiful cube of snowbanks around my car. Other than that hiccup though the drive to work was pleasant.
Bonus too, putting winter tires on saved me about 15 bucks a month in insurance.
